Re: Friday, September 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed this game, and sad to do so, because this is the first time I've known someone before he/she was on the show. I won't get too specific on here for various reasons, but I used to know Riley's family when I was in undergrad years ago, and I can't say enough nice things about them--they're gr...

Re: Friday, September 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lots of tough top-box material for me: "Can you hear that?", Meghan Markle, honey curing coughs, or "my country, right or wrong" were all absolute NHOIs to me. 5/5 eludes me yet again, and in a wheelhouse category no less. I thought "Double animal names" was going to be things like gorilla gorilla ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The contestants' general lack of geography knowledge perplexes me. There are so many random factoids you can't prepare for on Millionaire, but any serious player should know at least the world capitals. To be fair, the geographic placement of state capitals within a state is a bit trickier, at leas...

Does "covered by" mean literally covered (as in the country lies entirely within the desert) or "touched by?"
was going to ask the same thing, since i don't believe any country is completely covered by the sahara desert

Just got back from vacation and put in my entry a little late (around 8 minutes), but hope you'll accept it - no worries if not.
no internet on vacation?

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

For team names I would prefer it be Team Colby, Team Ken etc. after the captains and no punny pub trivia types. Considering that Pam Mueller's recent trivia team name at the NTL Championships in New Orleans was Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge (well, it could have been the choice of JyV92, hanzz or...

Re: Monday, September 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The new opening had a lot going on to take in at a quick glance: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1841/29658699547_6ee3cf6a8b.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1890/29659081887_13e2ee220f.jpg The season has just begun and I’m already in midseason form.

Thanks for the SHC. would have got it had they not used the german title for the piece and used vltava....i am more familiar with vyshehrad than that one..when i went to uni in prague i lived in...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

So now we know what the “big announcement” is and I think it sounds like a hoot. I think this beats the $&)); out of fantasy football and its ilk and can foresee a thread here with our own fantasy league picks. way better than fantasy football for sure...but not close to fantasy basketball or fanta...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Am I the only one here who's never heard of either the piece or the composer for the R6D4 9-pointer? For J! purposes, he's the Czech composer who's not Dvořák, probably best known for his opera The Bartered Bride . Moldau and Libuse seem to be the only other works of his that J! clues have used to ...
